So car wouldn't start up for wife this AM. Received several DIC messages: Battery Saver | Check theft-deterrent | Check Stabila-Trak and more.
Saw a bit of corrosion around negative battery post, but even after cleaning it off, still not enough juice to start, and same DIC messages. Battery/Voltage Info on the DIC is showing under 9V (8.6/8.7 varying).
We are most likely out of battery warranty, as we have 50K miles on the Cruze. Should we just replace the battery OR have it towed into the dealership for diagnostics/new battery. Not being cheap, but if I can just replace the battery, no big deal and would rather do that than tow and repair bill. However, I am concerned if there is an electrical problem that caused the batteries death.
Is 50K 3 years 'normal' life on a Cruze battery?
Thanks in advance!
